Turkish dailies on Tuesday cover Russia’s military intervention in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and US President Obama’s response to it, as well as the 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood.

A number of dailies, such as Haberturk, Milliyet, Radikal, Hurriyet, Yeni Safak, Star and Turkiye cover Russia’s actions in Ukraine and President Obama’s response to it.

Daily Haberturk headlines “Ultimatum” citing US President Barack Obama saying that Russia’s military intervention “would not go unpunished”. Milliyet headlines “Stern warning from the US”, citing Obama saying that Russia’s action in Ukraine is a violation of international law that places Russia on “the wrong side of history.”

Hurriyet headlines “Won’t go unpunished” on the raising of Russian flags in government buildings in Crimea. The daily says Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had a phone conversation where Putin told Merkel that the measure Moscow has taken is completely fitting given the “extraordinary situation,” the daily said.

The 86th Academy Awards in Hollywood were covered by most of Turkish dailies.

Milliyet headlines “No surprise” on the win of '12 Years a Slave' for best picture, while the director of the sci-fi drama 'Gravity', that received seven Oscars, won the best director award. Matthew McConaughey took best actor for his role in 'Dallas Buyers Club'. Hurriyet also reports “Oscar didn’t surprise at all” with Cate Blanchett winning the best actress award.
